I just made a jordy bag this weekend.  The strap is very flimsy. How can I make it more rigid?  A layer of interfacing? Or another layer of fabric?  Please help.  I want to make more.

Try some medium to heavy weight iron on interfacing.  I use this for the bag itself and in the strap, it works well

Wow, this is great, I'm going to try this tutorial ASAP!  But I do have a question--what sort of fabrics are good for the outside and the lining?  I was thinking I'd use a sheet (with a Star Wars patter, dork=me) as the outside, and  something sturdier (maybe corduroy?) on the inside.  Would that work, or should I make the sheet the inside part?
I wouldn't use corduroy on the inside cause it would fray since you put things in the bag. You could use some cotton fabric on the inside and interface the sheet to make it sturdier.
(I'm still searching for a star wars sheet, my brother didn't wanted to give his to me  Roll Eyes)

Same here. Just use interface on the strap too. I always make it on mine. Plus I sew along both long sides of the straps near to the end of the fabric.

I just participated in my first swap~ the 10 dollar or less swap.  My partner and I both randomly made each other jordy bags.

This is the one I made for her:



They are so fun to make Cheesy

Thanks Jordy! i was searching for a pattern like this for a long time.  I knew it couldn't be too difficult but I still couldn't figure it out on my own.  I've made 3 so far and I am planning on more.

I saw the TIME article and wanted to check out the sites it mentioned. I made my first Jordy Bag yesterday. Both the outside and the lining are a rather conservative twill. There is a pocket on the inside and the outside big enough to hold floppy disks. I used a contrasting thread and a scallop pattern for the detailing.

of course it's possible!! People made things before the sewing machine came around Wink

It'll just take a llittle more (okay, a lot more!) time! But it'll be great!

Hi all - I'm very new here and my jordy bag is my second bag I've ever made. It turned out beautifully, but the interfacing I used was too soft and it was too droopy for me. I bought some really stiff interfacing and instead of rippiny my purse apart I pulled it inside out and tacked it in place. Then right side out I snipped it to get it to fit correctly. Now I love the purse. I'm working on the snap strap right now,but once that is done I will post a picture.

Thanks for the great tutorial.
